Students will learn the fundamental theory of mechanical design and will learn to apply this in the design and analysis of a variety of machine elements. Methodical design process is emphasized. The course is split into two parts, the first addressing the process of design and fundamentals of stress, strain, material properties, failure theories, fatigue, and fracture mechanics as they apply to simplistic example components. In the second section, such design theories are applied in the analysis of several key machine features (e.g. notches, holes, keyways, welds) and components (e.g. shafts, bolts, screws and gears).
